Aimed at students seeking a career in science, engineering or mathematics, this text on multivariable calculus emphasizes that calculus is best understood via geometry and interdisciplinary applications. The book includes problem sets and chapter projects that offer a substantial source of applied problems. Also included are chapter-end "do-it-yourself" projects on topics in science, engineering and probability. Short examples of MATLAB code are featured occasionally.
